Isn't he cute!?
One of my employees was talking about her friend who had a litter of baby pit bulls. All my friends who have dogs has a pit bull and despite the bad reputation society has given them, I believe they are the best dogs in the world! All my friends pits (my parent's as well) are very kind, loving, protective, playfull... will sound like they'll rip your head off at the door but like you to death once you come in... kind of dogs.
Anyway, I had mentioned that I wanted one but that I couldn't afford the $250 the guy wanted for one right now. So she calls me yesterday and tells me to come out to the parking lot and meet my new puppy. She bought him for me! Is that cool or what!?
I haven't given him a name yet, but I have a few ideas. I want to give him a name that's symbolic to me. So far I'm leaning toward "Lance" to honor my fallen hero, "Dimebag" Darrell. Here's a few others:
Cliff - To honor another fallen hero Cliff Burton of Metallica
Layne - To honor another fallen hero Lane Staley of Alice In Chains
Dean - My favorite line of guitars
Rufus - The name of my first snake
Lunchbox - My wife wants to name him this. I think it would be a cute nickname.
I think Malachai (pronounced Mali-ki) would be cool too.
So what do you think? Isn't he cute!?
